Study year 1

Master's Programme, Macromolecular Materials, 120 credits (TMMMM), Programme syllabus for studies starting in autumn 2018

The following courses are part of study year one.

The course application codes and study periods are valid for the academic year 2018/2019. For other academic years, different application codes and study periods may apply.


Study year 1 consists of two mandatory courses, at least three of the conditionally elective courses and recommended courses. There might be changes. Recomended courses may be cancelled if number of admitted students are less than minimum of places, or will be given every second year.

The courses KF2110 and AK2036 are mandatory courses for all students admitted to the program, except students admitted to program with a background  at the Degree Programme in Materials Design and Engineering (CMATD), which instead must follow the courses: KD1230 and AK2036. If the student has studied the course KD1230, he/she should instead follow a course from the recommended or conditionally elective courses list.

CBIOT-students who wants to obtain the Degree of Master of Science in Engineering, Degree Programme in Biotechnology, must study 2 of these courses;
BB2460 Biocatalysis, 7,5 credits
BB2020 Molecular Enzymology, 7.5 credits
BB2425 Glycobiotechnology, 7.5 credits
